North Fort Myers bank robbery suspect covered himself in feces

Published: Updated:

NORTH FORT MYERS, Fla. – The man taken into custody Tuesday in connection to a bank robbery at the Wells Fargo at 5500 Bayshore Road has been identified after an alleged unsanitary altercation with deputies.

During several hours of questioning Dravion Vonkeith Hampleton, 25, refused to tell officers his name, according to Southwest Florida Crime Stoppers. Deputies eventually booked him as “John Doe.”

While in custody at the Lee County Sheriff’s Office, Hampleton was granted permission to use the restroom, deputies said. He emerged covered in his own feces, tried to strike officers and threw fecal matter, according to an arrest report.

Hampleton is facing charges for armed robbery, battery on a law enforcement officer and resisting arrest with violence.

He is accused of entering the Wells Fargo with a gun, which he allegedly pointed at the bank teller while demanding cash. Hampleton left with an undisclosed amount of cash but was caught by police hours later, according to Crime Stoppers.

The bank has been robbed multiple times in the past few years, most recently in April 2015.

Since he has been identified, Hampleton also is now facing charges for lying to officers.
